Description

Ahimsa's Army: Carrying the Sword that Heals. Ahimsa means Nonviolence in Sanskrit. We are advocates of peace education and nonviolent action. Vision: to create a community devoted to active nonviolence; i.e. a replicable organization that actively combats violence on the local and global level, using nonviolent means (educating and applying the lessons of Gandhi and King on the local level). "A nonviolent army acts unlike armed men, as well in times of peace as in times of disturbances. Theirs will be the duty of bringing warring communities together, carrying peace propaganda, engaging in activities that would bring and keep them in touch with every single person in their parish or division. Such an army should be ready to cope with any emergency, and in order to still the frenzy of mobs should risk their lives in numbers sufficient for that purpose." "Satyagraha [truth-force] brigades can be organized in every village and every block of buildings in the cities." - M. K. Gandhi
